The dive watch. A truly classic style that goes well with just about any outfit. You can spend $50 or $50,000 on a dive watch, but the Orient Ray is, hands down, the best value in automatic dive watches.
I'm not alone in thinking that either. You'd be hard pressed to find a single bad word spoken about the Orient Ray (or it's older brother, the Mako). It's one of the few inexpensive mechanical watches that is very well respected by watch enthusiasts.
Inside the Ray there's an Orient-built automatic movement, which means you'll never have to worry about changing batteries. It also has a screw-down crown that helps get you the 200 meter water resistance. Day/date display on the dial, an excellent bracelet, and a very wearable 41.5mm case size all makes for a watch that ticks just about all the right boxes.
The Ray is available in both a blue or black dial, with an orange dial occasionally showing up from time to time as well. If you're looking to get into mechanical watches and aren't sure where to start, the Ray is an excellent gateway drug.
